Recently when listening to the Whitey Album it dawned on me that it was nearly a perfect record. The sequencing is thrilling. I always seem to forget how much I love it as a whole. I'd kill to hear them make a proper Ciccone sequel. Imagine all the studio trickery they could f with nowadays?

yeah it rules. i like how its really experimental but at the same time kinda a reflection on pop culture. leave it to the youth i suppose.

i like the inside over too, with the punk chick with the cool hardcore decked out bed room.

"Macbeth" is great. So is "Third Fig."

I'm pretty sure it Susanne.. because the picture below it J. Masic, so that would sorta make sense, y'know referencing the whole "Two Cool Rock Chicks" track.

I really believe that WHITEY deserved a Deluxe Edition reissue. I'm sure they did lots more experimenting in Wharton's studio! Plus there was "****" and the 7" versions of "Into the Groovey" and "Burnin' Up" and the Lucky Sperms tracks would've fit in there, etc. Man, I really should've been hired to spearhead a full-on deluxe reissue campaign for the band!

It's one one of my favorites... with the exception of 'Me & Jill' and 'Two Cool Rock Chicks' which are good for a couple listens... but eventually lose value IMO.

'Macbeth', 'Into the Groovey' and the redone 'Making the Nature Scene' are probably three of my top SY/CY songs ever.

That's why I started this thread, Derek. Years ago I thought the same thing, but have since realized that MUSICALLY it's rather awesome. It just took me a long time to feel that way.

its possibly the best novelty album ever released. macbeth rules as too does into the groovey but it is a novelty record, it is a tounge in cheek piss take, it is sy trying to record licence to ill... its funny, its good but it doesnt need or deserve a reunion tour, reduxing, follow up or anything..

oh yeah, it was remastered alright.......
